    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins. Study questions by Kathy Rowland.

    Following 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 Kings continues the history of Israel’s monarchy in light of God’s covenants. During the period of 1 Kings, the kingdom of Israel was divided between Israel in the north and Judah to the south. There were evil rulers such as Ahab and Jezebel…


    …and godly rulers such as Solomon and Jehoshaphat. Many prophets were sent by God to Israel during this period, notably Elijah. In spite of Judah’s failure to serve the Lord wholeheartedly, and of Israel’s kings to serve Him at all, we will see God continue to carry out His covenant plan for His people.

    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    The book of 1 Samuel covers a period of about 115 years, and is a pivotal point in the history of Israel. The long period of the rule of the judges ended under the prophet Samuel, and royal history began with the anointing of Saul and later David.


    The history and lessons of this book are presented to us in the form of biography of Samuel’s, Saul’s and David’s early years. As with other books of the Bible, 1 Samuel records man’s failure and God’s faithfulness. Within its pages we see God’s long-suffering with those in rebellion against Him, and we see what God can do in and through those who are committed to serving Him.

    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    Second Samuel continues the narrative begun in 1 Samuel, with David being acclaimed king in Israel. He makes Jerusalem his royal city and brings the Ark of the Lord there. We see the glory and success of David's reign, as well as his weaknesses and failures.

    Within the pages of 2 Samuel God uncovers David's humanity. You will discover that this “man after God's own heart” (see Acts 13:22) was a sinful human, like us all, who had to depend on God's mercy and faithfulness.

    Paul wrote 2 Timothy while he was imprisoned in Rome under Emperor Nero. During this time, he languished in a cold dungeon, chained like a common criminal. His friends even had a hard time finding out where he was being kept. Paul knew that his work was done…


    …and his life was nearly at an end. He wrote to Timothy, urging him to persevere in preaching the gospel, and if necessary, to suffer for it.

    By  Nancy J. Collins

    Covers Genesis chapters 1-26. Genesis is the book of beginnings. It tells us about God’s creation of the heavens and the earth, and of all that is on the earth, including human beings—made in God’s image. Genesis relates the beginnings of sin and redemption, of society and civilization, and of marriage and family…

    It gives the life stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, telling of both their faith and their failures, and seeing God’s hand on their lives. The book of Genesis is the foundation for understanding God’s plan for our lives today.
